1941 fashion show restored with AI enhanced upscaling to 4k 60 fps. Filmed during the Blitz in 1940-41, this is a real Technicolor gem.
Dresses by Edward Molyneux, Norman Hartnell, Victor Stiebel, Charles Creed, Digby-Morton, Worth, and Peter Russell. The film was part of a home front drive to highlight Britain’s ingenuity in wartime. Filmed by Jack Cardiff, who is best remembered for his beautiful Technicolor cinematography in the films of Powell & Pressburger.
It’s an amazing time capsule of wartime 1940’s fashion.

The films contention as World War II entered its second dreary year was that the British fashion industry was still ticking over nicely; and one could dream in Technicolor of better days to come. The dresses featured here would have required a lot of coupons.
